    Default What if they come for your firearms?

    I’ve been wondering, does the state know what firearms I have? Hypothetically if “they come for my guns” and I say I don’t have any, do they know if I have any or not under the laws we currently have? Can they come in and search my property without a warrant? Just a few things that I think about ...

    The police will know all the handguns you have that were bought in PA via state police registry of sale. Long guns are not on that registry. If someone isn't suppose to have a gun I don't know if the state police registry alone is enough for them to get a search warrant because the registry doesn't contain addresses.
    Red flag laws are not in place here in PA so if one does pass or pass on a federal level a lot would depend on how the law is written.

    If that situation should occur I would advise not to consent to any search, ask if they have a warrant and lawyer up, if they have no warrant tell them to leave.

    Promptly start video ASAP. Stream to a cloud service if possible. If things go sideways, it's the best way to show you were not a "crazy", id bet the body cam footage would be deleted or "not turned on" during unlawful search & seizure.

    I wonder if that "registry" is up to date. If it's like everything else in the world, it's all screwed up.

    No doubt it’s a messed up registry. Lol I really hope things don’t get like that but they’ve done it on other countries like Australia from what Ive heard, so who knows. Scary times indeed

    Supposedly they are 1.5-2years behind on entering data. Plus even if you sold a pistol it doesnt come off your list of guns

    You know what .... and this is just my theory.
    When that day comes ......they will be assuming you have firearms unknown to them.
    And just because you hand them the ones they may know of ..... won't matter.
    And until they check every keester in the house and abuse you enough to talk ........ they'll assume they are missing some.
    Just my opinion ... so why worry , right?

    To quote Junior Soprano, "come heavy or not at all"
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control

    They can't prove you didn't lose them in a boating accident.
